JOSH Grant was recalled to the Pilgrims' starting line-up for the 107th Devon Expressway Derby against Exeter City.

The Chelsea loanee was called into the Argyle back three, replacing the suspended Scott Wootton as the only change from the side that had warmed up for the all-Devon contest with two wins in a row at Home Park.

Midfielder George Cooper, provider of three of the Pilgrims' goals in their 4-0 Tuesday night win against Leyton Orient, kept his place instead of Danny Mayor, who has been unable to force his way into the starting 11 since being suspended two matches previously for the 2-0 home win over Carlisle United.

The attack was led by in-form ex-Exeter striker Joel Grant, who went back to his former club having scored a goal in each of Argyle's four games leading up to the derby.

A strong and forward-looking bench included another former Exeter front-man, Ryan Taylor, back from injury.

Argyle (3-5-2): 24 Alex Palmer (gk); 25 Josh Grant, 6 Niall Canavan, 3 Gary Sawyer (capt); 2 Joe Riley, 7 Antoni Sarcevic, 8 Joe Edwards, 32 George Cooper, 21 Callum McFadzean; 39 Zak Rudden, 16 Joel Grant. Substitutes (not used): 1 Mike Cooper (gk), 4 Will Aimson, 9 Ryan Taylor, 10 Danny Mayor, 17 Byron Moore, 18 Billy Clarke, 20 Adam Randell.
